Cain aa hla them the fourth vera of
fh. xclr riwlm which says, "In his handa
ara the big- places of the . earth and the
strength of the hills la hla also," Rev.
Howard MacAyeal preached a forceful ser
mon from the pulpit of St. Mary's Avenue
Congregational church 8unday morning.
Rev. Mr. MacAyeal was asked by the
church to fill the pulpit for the Sunday,
one of the leading preachera being called
each Sunday with a view of finding a suc
cessor to Rev. Robt. Tost.
"Kllla have been symbolical with atrong
character for all time, even from the time
Df the earliest writings. In India today
there Is a never-ending procession to the
hills, for people cannot live long and retain
their vitality In the lowlands. It affects
the spirit as well as the physique. Hills
stimulate the best that there Is In a man
and bring out hla Independence. Hills and
the temperate tone are similar.
"Unquenchable In spirit, It Is no wonder
that the people of New EnRland have auch
a reputation for atrengtb of character when
one consider the nature of the hill from
which they come. Americans are all from
the hill country. The world of the Bible
has always been a world of hills. The ark
rested on a hill; Abraham gave the law of
sacrifice when he built the altar on a
mountain; the lord gave the great civil codo
'from a mountain; Moses saw the land of
promise from the hills; on Nebo's lonely
mountain was Moses laid; Jesus was
tempted on a mountain; the Savior preached
Hla great sermon from a mountain; on a
mountain the transfiguration of the Savior
was visible to the multitude.
"There Is an element of stability about
mountains not found elsewhere. Beneath
these mammoth structures are solid founda
tions, and It Is Just so with character. It
stands upon the foundation of still another
mountain mountain upon mountain and
rock upon rock.
"Men say that the cross and sacrifices
are disappearing today, but this Is non
sense. The thought of love and human
sympathy la Increasing.'
FIRE OME OF iUU' IVMBOI.S
Chaplin Sllrer Dwells Its Slgnlfl
caate In Bible History.
Chaplain H. Percy Silver of the Thir
teenth United Statea Infantry. Fort Crook,
occupied the pulpit at Trinity cathedral
Sunday morning, preaching from the text.
Exodus 111:2: "And the angel of the Ixird
appeared unto him In a flame of fire out
of the midst of a bush: and he looked,
and, behold, the bush was not consumed."
Chaplain Silver said In part:
"Moses, to whom this verse of scr'pture
pertains, had within him the fear and
faith of Ood. He refused to be called tho
son of Pharoah'a daughter, but chose
sooner to suffer for the sins and afflictions
of men. God led him back from worldly
ambitions to become the leader of the
lowly and downtrodden Israelites, oppressed
of the Egyptians. It was he who led
them out Of the land of darkness Into the
land of light.
"In every human heart there Is a long
ing for light. The light of Ood descended
Into that Utile bramble bush at the side of
the hill of Horcb, and made of that hum
ble shepherd the leader of' men. God uses
small means to accomplish great ends.
Fire a the symbol of God's preaenct, of
CInA'm vatnirAanca of mnrcv. trials and I
S Hilt HUH. &k ! IIJO dWUlCIU VI ClUljr
U host Man la made pure and atrong by
the fire power of God's sacred fire.
"The Hebrews believed that the fire of
God's love would never go out. It' Is the
symbol of Japanese Shlntolsm and of
Zoroaaterlsm. God uses fire not merely
as the symbol of hell, but of heaven. The
fire of hell burna with bltternesa and la
the vengeance of God. In heaven It la
the symbol of brightness. Paul said 'Heap
coals of fire upon thine enemy's head, not
to burn, but to win and warm them.'
Every law that God has made Is for our
good. Things rightly used uplift us, (but
wrongly used they overwhelm and destroy
us. . Ws suffer physical pain when we
violate the law of God. Fire burna out
the evil and operatea aa a healing and
preserving salt. The soul of man burns
with God'a love, not to destroy, but to
uplift with brightness. So let our light
shine before all men, illumined with the
love of God and for Hla glory. Let Hia
love then to burn In our hearts that we
may be warmed by His eternal grace and
ever live In the way of righteousness."
WAITING OX UOD GIVES STRENGTH
Rev. Dr. Hare Preaches to Old Con
arreBatlon. Rev. 8. M. Ware, D. D., of Spokane,
preached Sunday morning and evening at
the Second Presbyterian church. Mr. Ware
was formerly pastor of this church and be
fore the morning sermon he gave feeling
expression to his pleasure at being again
able to greet so many of hla old friends
and co-workers. In hla morning sermon he
took for hla text Isaiah xl:39: "But they
that wait upon the Lord shall renew their
strength; they shall mount up with wlnga
aa eaglsa; they ahall run and not be weary;
and they shall walk and not faint." He
said In parti
"Waiting on God la the most prominent
thought In thla text, and we find that the
fruitage of thla waiting Is a renewal of
strength. There la need in our every-day
life for an elevation in the tone of our
spirituality. In our ideals, our thoughta
and our affections. We ahould never be
content with low, carnal ldeala. There la
need alao for progress, to ri'n In the ser
vice of the Lrtrd. We must not fear to un
dertake great things for Gud because of the
thought that we may full. Trusting In Him
we need have no feu r.
"Waiting on the Lord dors not mean Idle
ness. It mcana movement, a mounting up
and a going forward. Wc must be ready to
go immediately and obediently to execute
the Master's commands. We must go In
love. In confidence. In expectation, in de
pendence, in patience, and we can afford
to wait Ood'a own time for the fruitage of
"Christiana today are Inclined to be con
tent with too low a tone spiritually. We
are guilty of being satisfied shprt of the
highest things God haa set before ua. We
ahould desire to know more of God'a high
purposes, to drink deeper of His grace, to
get a larger horiaon of spirituality. We
must grow In grace against the day of sor
row and trouble. We must have the grace
to live and the grace to die, and the Lord
will suit Hla help to our needa If we but
approach Hla work In a proper aplrit of
confidence and trust."

RATIO IS Rtnltn FOR A FALL
Vleea of Titles I'ndermtnlna- Clvle
Tlrtn, Saya Rev. Dr. Crafts.
Dr. Wilbur F. Crafts, superintendent of
the International Reform Bureau at Wash
ington, recited his lecture about "Living
and Dying Nations," with an appendix
regarding the work of the organisation at
Hanscom rark Methodist church Sunday
morning. He flayed the quality of art In
Sunday newspapers and said that a man
with an axe could make better pictures.
Great fault was found with the rearing
of children by American parents. He said
their carelessness In allowing the young
of opposite sex to "run together like a
lot of cattle" la astounding and amaxlng,
and that he would prefer to see In force
here the oriental method of herding girls
and women In harems than- the lax cus
toms which prevail.
Impurity, Intemperance ail Sabbath
breaking he considered the principal causes
for the decay of nations.
Regarding the things secured by the Re
form Bureau In Nebraska, Dr. Craft's
mentioned Governor Mickey's order for
bidding the National Guard to participate
In Sunday sham battles, tend the act of
the mayor of Falls City In driving a "Jesse
James" show out of town, prohibiting Sun
day base ball and suppressing gambling.
Much praise was accorded to President
Roosevelt as a reformer, though the
speaker mentioned that he thought the
president Is a man somewhat too much
addicted to standing by his friends. Dr.
Crafts said In part:
"The Sabbath keeping nations of today
are literally riding on the high places of
the earth. They are enjoying the golden
mean of liberty under the law. China,
Turkey, France and Spain can be held up
as Illustrations of nations that are dying.
Great Britain and the United Statea of
those that are living"
"Our Invaders are the1 brutalized wen
filling our streets, made more and more
brutal by the lax observance of Sabbath
laws. We .nust destroy the corrupting
Influences of cities or the nation will be
destroyed. Babylonian vices mean a
"France has the worst record In Im
purity, Sabbath breaking and Intemperance.
You never heard of a nation flying from
free silver or free trade, but many have
died from free love. It Is the enemies that
Folk and Weaver are fighting we need to
arm against. Impurity Is the cancer that
affects us, and surgery of Missouri and
Philadelphia is needed as nothing elae."
PREACHED IX OLD CHURCH HOME
Her. Clarence J. Williamson Looks at
Men ThroaR-tt Microscope.
Rev. Clarence J. Williamson of Pittsburg,
Pa., preached Sunday morning at the Cen
tral United Presbyterian church, the place
where he attended services when a boy.
Mr. Williamson, upon graduating from the
Omaha High school about ten years ago,
left Omaha for an eastern college. After
obtaining his degree he taught three years
in Asslout, Egypt, and came back to his
native country to take a course In the
Alleghany Theological seminary. He finished
hla studies in that school last spring and
Is now assistant at the Sixth United Pres
byterian church In Plttsourg.
'What is Man?" was the subject of the
speaker's discourse. He regarded the hu
man family first through a miuroscope and
then through a telescope, hunting for faults
In one Instance and for greatness In the
"Examining man as through a micro
scope, his insignificance is prominent' he
aald. "The truth la felt of 'dust thou art
and unto duat ahalt thou return.' In the
language of Pascale In his broodlngs, 'Is
not a man a little thing?' Read the dally
press and you note the chronicles of his
littleness, his wickedness, hla depravity
and the Immoralities of aoclety. At the
height of thought the bram snaps and he
becomes a gibbering Idiot. He builda and
knowa not who will reap the beneflta of his
labor, for fires and storms destroy what he
has made. His strength, breaks down In
Impotence. The "paths of glory lead but
to the grave.' The old earth la wrinkled
over with human graves. Verily all la
vanity and vexation of spirit.
' "But look at man through the telescope.
His higher Impulses, his brilliance, his
resource, his power to subject nature to
his will, are revealed. Now you begin to
understand how It was that In the be
ginning man waa tempted to consider him
self a God. Two things prove man great,
sin and salvation from sin. The very faot
that man can sin shows that he la great,
and his fall Is great because he has fallrn
from a high place. The wonder of salva
tion reveals the true greatness of man.
He who knows all secrets of darkness saw
a gleaming Jewel in the fallen spirit of
man and sent His only begotten Son to
snatch the Jewel from the mire. How great
must man be to be redeemed at such a
cost. Man alone Is a failure; united with
Christ, he la great."
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Reined The Best
T. M. Woid, manager of the Whits
County News, Bee be, Ark., Is a representa
tive southern business man, who does not
hesitate in expressing his good opinion of a
well krown remedy. He says: "It gives
me pleaaure to recommend Chamberlain's

of the Reform Bureau of Washington, D.

and Sunday morning spoke at the Hans
com Park Methodiat church on the aub
Ject, "Living and Dying Nations." Mr.
Crafts' latest book he calls -"Patriotic
Studies." which Is a compilation of all
the bills, acts and documents passed by
the United States congress In the last
seventeen years which have any bearing
on social reform.
The purpose of the book Is to bring into
prominence and to hold up to public view
the members of congress who have been
instrumental In passing bills which apper
tain to the closing of saloons on Sunday,
the stopping of the base ball games, horse
races and the closing of exposition gates
on the first day of the week.
Mr. Crafts says that his book has been
grossly misrepresented through many of
the eastern papers, and he especially takes
exceptions to an article sent out by a
New York paper which, he says, did not
deal fairly with the work by stating vari

MANAWA DRAWS A BIG CROWD
Venetian Carnival Opcna to Success
ful Start and Dellahta
The opening of the Venetian carnival at
Lake Manawa yesterday drew an unusual
crowd, the rush In the evening being
larger than that of the early afternoon,
due to the faot . 'that the fireworks are
shown at 9 o'olock. The parks and tho
boats were beautifully decorated with Japa
nese lanterns of divers shape and colors.
As the launchea paraded In a circle a very
pretty exhibition of fireworks was given
from the top of each. At th Casino G.
L. HefTner, the baritone singer, And the
motion pictures were attended by at many
as could gain admission. Prof. Andrews,
the aeronaut, made a success of his effort
to make an -unusually high ascension. It
was pretty unanimously agreed Andrews
attained about the greatest height he haa
ever reached at Manawa. A high dive In
the afternoon and a fire dive in the even
ing by "Dare Devil" Fackler contributed
to the list of thrillers. Two concerts by
Covalt's band were well received. The
base ball game between the Neumayers
and the Coronas was won by the former
by a score of 4 to 1. The weather being
ideal for bathing and boating, both these
distinctively summer pastimes were largely
patronised, while each of the other pas
times did a thriving business.
OPPORTUNITY IN DAILY LIFE
Hard Work the Only War to Succeed,
According; to Secretary
W. S. Rothery. office secretary of the
Young Men's Christian association, spokd
at the Hanscom Park Methodist church
Sunday evening on the subject, "The Young
Man and His Opportunities." It was the
third of the cerles of "lay sermons" which
are being conducted by the brotherhood of
the church' and which have been largely
attended. Mr. Rothery's talk was. to the
effect that "opportunities are not to be
gained by waiting," and that the only
way for one to become successful waa by
dint of hard, faithful work.
Mr. Rothery cited a number of Incidents
where men have risen to prominence from
obscurity by their own efforts and hard,
conscientious work, which, he said. Is the
one way to become successful.
He spoke of, the. everyday life of a man
aa being full of opportunities and these,
he said, should be Improved and advantage
taken of them;

WHEREABOUTS OF HIS CREW UNKNOWN

Switch t'nder the City
No further move was made by the Bur
lington railroad after the Issuance of the
Injunction by Judge Munger Saturday nlaht
about midnight restraining It from laying
tracks on Ninth street. A large crew of
men va gathered at Lincoln by Superin
tendent Blgnell of the Burlington, an.l
brought to Omaha shortly before midnight
Saturday night for the supposed Intention
of laying tracks on Ninth street, which
privilege was" last week granted to the
Union Pacific by the city council.
This action of the council has been hang
ing fire for some time, but the ordinance
was passed at the regular session Tuesday
night and signed by the mayor. The North
western and Burlington were opposed to
the Union Pacific having thla concession at
first, but the Northwestern finally with
drew Its objections and stood aside. The

The first move waa to line up St. Phllo
mena pariah authorities against the under
taking of the Union Pacific, but the argu
ments of the church were easily knocked
In the head when once the arguments for
the switch were presented. In the first
place the cathedral will not be used as such
very much longer, for a new building is
being constructed at Fortieth and Burt and
the construction of this track will make the
church property that much more valuable.
BlaTnell Obeyed Court Order.
The crew of men from Lincoln arrived In
Omaha to find that Judge Munger had
granted a temporary order, on application
of the Union Pacific restraining them from
pursuing the work, so Superintendent Blg
nell withdrew. It could not be learned on
Sunday where they had been taken, but
It was thought in some quarters that they
would be brought back and put to work
In violation of the order. Thla waa not
done, however, and everything remalna as
It was at midnight Saturday night.
The Burlington officials claimed that they
had no Intention of putting In tracks on
Ninth street, but Intended to lay tracks
under an old ordinance which gave them
permission to occupy the alley between
Farnam and Harney west to Twelfth street.
Propoara to Puah Work.
"Orders have been given out to proceed
with preparations for the work with all
possible haste," was the statement made
at Union Pacific headquarters yesterday re
garding the laying of the tracks by that
"Work will begin this week, then?" was
"Oh, yes, the first of the week; Just as
soon, In fact, as It will be possible. We
do not Intend that a moment's time will
be wasted. We secured the right honorably
and fairly from the city council and now
we propose to give to the city the ad
vantage which these tracks will afford.
We Invited the Burlington, as well as the
Northwestern, at the outset, before we sub
mitted the matter to the council, to Join
us In this deal, and they refused, and the
Burlington went as far as It could to fight
the ordinance. It certainly cornea In poor
grace, now for that road to take unfair
means of us."
Car a Placed Acroas Street.
At 1 o'clock this morning an attempt was
made by the Burlington road to stop what
was supposed to be an attempt by the
Union Pacific company to build a track
along Ninth atreet from Jones to Capital
avenue, the right of which was given them
by the city council at last Tuesday night's
. The Burlington officials evidently thought
the Union Paclflo would try to atart the
construction in the hours of the early
morning, and In order to head them off
placed cars across their tracks in the alleys
between Farnam and Harney streets and
between Harney and Howard streets and
on Jackson. The cars were brought to the
alleys by the switching crew and left there,
blocking the crossing on either side of the
street, leaving only enough space for teams
to pass In the middle of the street. The
police officials were notified of the blockade
and a squad of patrolmen made the Bur
lington company remove the cara. Four
switchmen of the Burlington were placed
under arrest and when they told that they
were acting under orders from the com
pany were released.
Yardmaster Robinson of the Burlington
was on hand and directed the proceedings.
